Here is another piece of rustic furniture. It measures 60” long x 36” tall x 20” deep. All the wood used is heart pine 3/4” thick. Natural wood tone stain and 4 coats of lacquer. Bottom of drawers is 1/2” plywood. These are some build pictures. I used 1” thick for the framing of each drawer level to make it a sturdy structure and to last for a long time without becoming loose and not shake. I used cleats to secure each level and glued and screwed into side panels. 3/4” plywood was used for the backing to add even more support. Thanks for looking and as always your comments and advice is greatly welcomed.

Totes increds! I love the finish. Too cool for school…...unless you’re talking about woodshop, that is.
